Great, thanks Alex. Not a lot then in what matters to me. I was hoping that they might have sorted out the AST. Maybe, if they ever manage it, it'll just be a software update as it appears the hardware's there.

Looks like it still could be mid-June for you then.
I'm really hoping they sort out this backlog soon.

Just adding my delivery times as it may help to inform others. Mine was for an Inscription T5 with winter and convenience packs. Ordered 28/2 delivered 31/5 - exactly 3 months. Quoted 4 months on ordering.

Is there any correlation between lead times and fuel type? Are Volvo running short of petrol engines or unwilling to ship diesel if new road tests highlight shortcomings (real or perceived)?

Ordered my XC40 March 6th. Has been put back for a third time. Now expected to leave factory July 10th. Getting a bid fed up with Volvo and delays. I’ll believe it when I see it. 😎

What I wouldn’t give for a July delivery date. I sometimes lie awake at night dreaming of a July delivery date.
